Roanoke Schools Adopt Threat-Alert Sys to Protect School Children

The Roanoke City Schools become the first school district in Alabama to implement the COPsync911 threat-alert system.

The COPsync911 threat-alert system safeguards schools, and other high-risk buildings – providing solutions that can save minutes when seconds count to save lives and protect citizens.

“We want to be proactive about our students’ safety,” said School District superintendent, Mr. Chuck Marcum.

“The COPsync911 threat-alert system provides school faculty and staff a direct line of communication with the nearest patrol officers and the 9-1-1 dispatch center should the need arise.”

“The District wants to provide the highest level of safety and security for our students, parents, faculty and staff.”

During active shooter situations or other threatening conditions, school personnel can use the COPsync911 threat-alert system instantly to summon the five closest patrol officers and communicate in real-time with the 9-1-1 dispatch center.

The school staff, the responding officers and the 9-1-1 dispatcher communicate about the incident as it unfolds via a ‘crisis communications portal.’ First responders are also provided an on-line map and a facility diagram.

“We continue to expand COPsync’s presence throughout the US with this first COPsync911 customer in Alabama,” commented Ronald A. Woessner, CEO of COPsync.

“The Company relentlessly continues to build-out its network of customers, which are now present in 18 states. We expect 2017 to be a very good year for business.”

“COPsync’s customer base continues to increase at a robust pace, and sales order bookings are accelerating. Further, it is predicted that the Trump administration will support funding for law enforcement and for border security, which we believe will help drive the Company’s growth in the years to come.”
